Court is in Session!
Criminal lawyers Adam Goodman and Scott Cowan are joined by Barry Davis to shed light on the
Humboldt bus crash.
Recently, the driver of the truck was sentenced to 8 years in prison.
Was there a length of sentence that would have made the families affected happy? Is this sentence off the mark and how do the guys feel about it?
Scott outlines why the sentence was based on the “careless” driving aspect of the law.
The principles of sentencing are outlined. The differences between the public perception of a legal sentence and a sentence in the eyes of the law are extensively observed.
Is there a higher degree of moral accountability for someone that has been drinking and driving and caught at a ride check versus someone that fell asleep at the wheel for 5 seconds? the guys answer this.
You may be surprised by the thoughts of our two lawyers on this topic.
It was a story that made international headlines and one that has affected the lives of far too many families and the trio hosting the chat approach it with sensitivity.
All that and more…
Its Outta The Court.
